Box Office Predictions (28-30th June) Results
I was so close this weekend, most of my predictions where pretty close but no White House Down had to crash and burn and throw off my numbers. My numbers were off by $25.2M over the top ten. But other than WHD the new releases did well and all returning films did some good numbers. So other than WHD the films this weekend did as expected. Go watch some movies and let’s look at the breakdowns.
Last weekend we had some surprises but not this weekend, well except for one new comer. Monsters University did well last weekend and only lost 44% this weekend for a solid score of $45.6M. World War Z shocked last weekend with big numbers and held on respectable numbers of $29.8M. Man of steel took a softer drop this weekend losing 49% making $20.8M.
The two strong leads two strong leads and lack of comedies for women allowed for this film to take second place with ease. I had a feeling this would do better than I predicted after all it had a lot going for it, however I didn’t see it taking the new comer top spot above White House Down. Well done ladies.
White House Down
This film had two massively popular stars, one big time director and a big budget. So the question really to ask is why did this fail so spectacularly. Seriously this is a weak total, $25M is terrible considering the budget of $150M. The film isn’t going to garner anything good internationally so it’s yet another bomb for a big budget film, joining the ranks of The Last Stand, Beautiful Creatures, Bullet to the Head, The Host, Jack the Giant Slayer, After Earth and The Internship. Lots of failed movies this year.
